Vogt Family Contra Band
Tuscaloosa, AL

smithfield fairThough the individual members have been performing separately for years, The Vogt Family Contra Band formed about a year and a half ago to play for contra dances in their hometown, Tuscaloosa, AL.  Since then, they have performed for several dances and parties in Tuscaloosa and Montgomery.  Daddy Dan Vogt, long-time rock-n-roller (the DT’s, the Hedtones), and mom Jil Chambless, long-time celtic musician (Henri’s Notions, the Ed Miller Trio) are very excited to be performing with their daughter Sophie Vogt (Alabama Girls’ Chorus, University of Alabama Community Music School), and son Jack Vogt (Alabama Boy Choir, Eastwood Middle School Band).  Their experience and youth bring a fresh approach to Scottish and Irish fiddle tunes and songs that will surely have your feet tapping.
